Making a Picture Frame out of Broken Ceramics


A broken ceramic article can be used creatively for making a lovely best-out-of-waste kind of picture frame. The tiny pieces together can be arranged in an array of beautiful design to create a personalized picture frame. Check out how:

Materials Needed
  • A broken ceramic article like a vase, tiles etc.
  • A plain picture frame, preferably a cardboard one
  • Mosaic glue
  • Tile grout


Step 1
First of all figure out what size of pieces would fit the kind of design you are planning on the picture frame, accordingly, squash the broken raw material available.

Step 2
The relatively larger pieces need to be squashed carefully. The best way to break the bigger ceramic pieces is by placing them within a pillow case or an old sock and tap them tactfully with gentle hand movements using a hammer. Make sure you don't end up breaking them into a size which can not even be picked. Stop the moment pieces are apt enough to lie flat on the picture frame surface.
